>> and confronting a fiscal cliff and sequestration, debt ceiling default and sequestration in march, government shutdown in april, another potential debt ceiling default in may could perhaps shake the confidence of some ininvesters in our ability to deal with our responsibilities? >> yes, congressman. we think that the perennial crisis mode of fiscal policy over the past few years is reducing people's kfls. how big an effect that is, we don't know. >> thank you, chair. thank you, doctor, for being back with us. i think by anyone's objective measure in this town or country we would consider you a smart man, an intelligent man, a good economist, right? >> thank you, congressman. >> that's why it befuddles me although it's certainly a measure's prerogative, it strikes me that some of us want to speechify rather than engage new conversation through some questioning and that's, for the record, i have so say i really appreciate mr. jeffrey's line of questioning. i'll try to continue on in that regard. speaking of speechifying. we heard that it's impossible to get ourselves out of this debt situation
